The large reservoir on the river Bystrzyca was created in the years 1970 -1974 as part of so-called 'volunteer community service'. Currently, it is a great recreational area for Lublin residents and tourists visiting the city. Among its numerous attractions it is worth mentioning cycle and nordic walking routes, a rope course, water-skiing, water equipment and bike rental services, as well as a pool complex at the Słoneczny Wrotków centre. It is also an angling haven. If you do not feel like spending your time actively, you can just lie on the grass and contemplate the natural surroundings around you.
